CLICK is a monthly food photography event. It is a theme-based contest. You do not need a blog to participate. Each month, entries will be invited based on a culinary ingredient or concept. More about it HERE.


Observe the art of seduction. Watch, learn, and don’t eat my cookie.
~ from the TV series “Friends”

“In the United States and Canada, a cookie is a small, flat-baked treat, containing milk, flour, eggs, and sugar, etc. In most English-speaking countries outside North America, the most common word for this is biscuit; in many regions both terms are used, while in others the two words have different meanings …

Its name derives from the Dutch word koekje or (informal) koekie which means little cake, and arrived in the English language through the Dutch in North America.”

‘A biscuit is a hard baked sweet or savory product like a small, flat cake, which in North America may be called a “cookie” or “cracker“. The term biscuit also applies to sandwich-type biscuits, where a layer of ‘cream’ or icing is sandwiched between two biscuits. In the UK, “cookie” is usually only used in the phrase “chocolate chip cookie” or to refer to larger, softer American style cookies. Referring to the Sesame Street character the Cookie Monster, British author Chris Roberts quipped that he prefers the word cookies over biscuits “as a character called Biscuit Monster would never have worked”.’ (Wikiipedia)


They can be sweet or savoury, single layer or sandwiched.

World Peace Cookies

One day when he was eating a cookie he offered me a bite. Don’t underestimate that. The poor guy’s so frightened of germs, it could darn near have been a proposal.

1. Make them wonder how your picture is related to the theme.

2. Stitch two or three pics together to make a diptych or triptych.

3. Put big borders, text or a dateline. Don’t. Please don’t.

4. Have them use their imagination to excavate your picture from beneath a giant copyright notice.

5. Add anything that distracts from the image.



(available for a month)

Lydia of The Perfect Pantry has organised Drop In and Decorate – a cookie donation drive for Mothers’ Day.

With your help, they hope to decorate and donate more than 1,000 cookies, coast to coast, between May 1-10 to shelters, food pantries, kids’ programs, senior centers, and local agencies all across the country.

Want to host your own cookies-for-donation party, in honor of your mother, your mother-in-law, or mothers everywhere?

* Pick a date between May 1 and 10. (Allow 1-2 hours for decorating.)
* Let Lydia know that you’re planning a decorating party (email to lydia AT dropinanddecorate DOT org).
* Invite a few friends, co-workers, neighbors, your worship group or book group. Or plan to decorate with your kids.
* Bake some cookies. If you don’t like to bake, ask others to bring a batch of cookies each (try our super-easy and delicious sugar cookie recipe).
* Collect a few decorating and wrapping supplies.
* Spend an hour or two decorating your cookies.
* Wrap the cookies.
* Donate your cookies to a local agency. They can help you find a place to donate if you don’t know of one in your community.

Remember to take photos while you’re decorating, and count your cookies.

The organizer(s) of the event that donates the most cookies will win a cool package of prizes.
